Chute Boxe owner Rudimar Fedrigo sues Anderson Silva
The Chute Boxe Academy which gave reigning UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva his start in mixed martial arts is back in the news. Specifically the owner of Chute Boxe Academy, Rudimar Fedrigo, is taking legal action against the ‘Spider’ for damage to his reputation because of allegations made in the fighter’s book.
The allegations levied by Silva include that Fedrigo is “a bad person” who troubled many people over the years. “He questioned my qualifications, which is absurd. There is a part in which he says I am a bad person and in another he raises doubts about my gradings… Look, he missed the truth with all of that. Unfortunately I had to take a decision.”
Rudimar has sued Anderson claiming moral indemnification due to the accusations contained in the biography. Fedrigo also requires the book to be prohibited to be sold – and an initial court hearing sided with him yesterday.
“It saddened me so much, I’m very upset it got this this point. Not once did Anderson ever tell me anything face to face, eye to eye. It is lamentable that after so many years he shot me in the back and in such a cowardly fashion,” he told R7.com.
